Go Go Go!

Right. So, I've decided to make my life a little bit difficult! Haha

I've noticed that I've started posting more house-y stuff on this blog, it's mainly because it's dominating my Google searches at the moment. As this is a fashion blog, I've decided to start another blog dedicated to home-wares, with a little bit of fashion and other bits and bobs thrown in for good measure. It's called Fandabbydozie and it's here...

I've started it on a different account so if I'm following you on here/you're following me on here, you're probably not following this blog. If you visit it, and like it, please feel free to follow me on there too... 

So back to regular posting on here, I've been on Asos again drooling at lovely patterned prints...

Ooooh they're all so lovely! Especially that Jaeger skirt... I want it so so bad!

1.Asos Vintage Star Print Culottes - £15
2.Asos Spot Rose Print Swing Top - £25
3.Oasis Cape Sleeve Poppy Print Blouse - £42
4.Primp Anchor Print Trapeze Tunic - £25
5.Boutique by Jaeger Flower Skirt - £75

Hazah, I hope you all have a wicked weekend.

Festival Chic

Argh I'm so hungover! My other half has left me to go and source out some food for a roast so I'm currently curled up on the sofa feeling rather sorry for myself. Still, it was a great weekend full of shopping, good company, good food, mediocre boxing and too much booze, so I can't complain too much.

Apologies that my posts of late have been leaning towards the home-ware more than fashion. As my brain is on home-mode it's dominating my Google searches, therefore it's dominating my blog! Haha

To pop back into the fashion zone I'm going to drop a quick post about festivals. It's that time of year when it's all kicking off and the fields are full of music, tents and wellies. With that in mind I've brought together a collection of a few nice bits so you can be a festival fashionista...

Hazah! Did you know that Hunter have got together with Jimmy Choo to create the ultimate in fashion wellington chic... madness!

So where does all this stuff come from...

1.Hunter & Jimmy Choo Biker Wellies - £255
2.Reiss Rowan Straw Boater Hat - £39
3.Alexander McQueen Black/Pink Skull Scarf - £165
4.J Brand 901 Low-Rise Stretch Denim Leggings - £160
5.Reiss Gala Embellished Nude Tee - £59
6.Jaeger Crystal Detail Sunglasses - £49
7.Marc by Marc Jacobs Leather Buckle Bracelet - £80
8.Vivienne Westwood Diamond Orb Bag - £290
9.Alexander McQueen Enamel Skull Ring - £65

What sort of festival to you gravitate towards?


So many options...

Pretty in Pink

Yikes it's Sunday! How did that happen? My weekend has been a whirlwind of house hunting and viewings, my brain has essentially been turned to goo by estate agents lies and unnecessary pressure to view properties which need too much work for too much money - why don't they ever listen!?

*ahem* rant over, and a break from Rightmove is needed.

This is just a speedy post full of precious things that I have dubbed - Pretty in Pink. 

Ahhh totes, how much I love thee! I always refer to my handbag as the 'bag of tricks' so I think I'll be purchasing that gorgeous tote!

Candy-floss Mind

Right. I've been told by one of my friends that while my blog is good and fun, there isn't nearly enough mindless chatter from me. I pointed out that this is a fashion blog, not a blog about my candy-floss mind, but apparently that isn't good enough. So to shut up my critic, here are some of the brain-farts that I've had today:

1. Eating too many salt and vinegar Snack a Jack's has made my lips feel weird and tingly

2. The new series of Teen Wolf will undoubtedly make me very sad and also make me pine to own the original Teen Wolf on DVD, ah Michael J. Fox, you were so young and 80's-a-fied

3. Wonders why wherever I stand on an empty train platform people always gather around me like I have explicit train knowledge and know exactly where the doors are going to open - I like to think it's because I look wise and worldly?!

4. Can't help but think in my head 'She's got huge tracts of land' every time I see a well-endowed woman

5. Wonders how long it will be before all of the cats on my street rise up and take over the world, they all have shifty eyes

6. Thought how amazing it would be if there was an entire day dedicated to The Princess Bride - but that would probably be inconceivable

7. Wishes that my office had a micro pig as some sort of team mascot... I would call him Bacon

8. Wonders if my list of things I'm looking for in a new house should be increased beyond - 'Must have a really kick-ass bathtub' and 'Living room needs enough room for Kinect and surround sound'

9. I am suspicious of this 'limited edition' blue Skittle... it's odd... is it supposed to taste of Facebook... I don't get the connection

10. Can a person eat too many carrots..? If so, how many is too many!?

If that's not good enough, have a picture list of THINGS that I like and like to do...

Happy now you bloody bum-head!?
